We will discuss the rules of the road for securities offerings by non-Canadian issuers into Canada. We also will discuss the prospectus regime applicable to Canadian issuers, with a focus on the shelf registration process and on dual-listed issuers. We will devote additional time and attention to certain popular deal formats.

Topics Will Include:

  • Are there shareholder approval requirements for privates, PIPE transactions, registered direct offerings?
  • Are there any special considerations for Canadian listed issuers participating in these offerings or in at the market offerings?
  • Any filing or approval requirements?
  • How does the investor withdrawal right work?
  • How does one reconcile the withdrawal right with wall-crossed offerings?
